The Zenergy Diploma in Facilitation is designed for people who wish to become professional group facilitators using a developmental and transformational approach. The diploma programme is designed by Dr Dale Hunter and led by the Zenergy trainers.

It is a modular programme designed to be undertaken on a part time basis over 2-4 years while engaged in other activities or work.  You can enrol in the diploma after completing the first module Zenergy Stage 1 or anytime afterwards.

You then plan your pathway through the modules and enter into an agreement with Zenergy which includes individual coaching by a designated Zenergy coach and become part of the Zenergy community.


A Zenergy trainer will be in touch to welcome you onboard and go through the programme with you.

On-going Personal Development

Working with groups can be challenging and to stay present and serve the purpose we need to be at work with our own emotional reactions. When we are triggered by a particular behaviour in the group or a sharing by one of the participants we need to know how to self facilitate and stay present and connected.

To help us do this we highly recommend that facilitators undergo personal development.

Examples of personal development programmes undertaken by Zenergy Alumni are Avatar and Landmark, Psycho Drama, advanced meditation practices.  Please reach out to a Zenergy Trainer if you would like to discuss your options. 


200 Hours of Facilitation Experience

You will  keep a journal recording your facilitation experience over the training period for 200 hours. This is approximately 20 full day workshops including design, delivery and debriefing or equivalent.


Expanding Collective Intelligence Project

The Project module of the Diploma is an opportunity to make a contribution to the world of facilitation. You choose an area you would like to explore and be experientially engaged with. Then through the project pass on the new knowledge, insights, and innovations you have gained on the way.

It can be undertaken at any time after you have completed Zenergy Stage 1. The purpose is to forward your facilitation in some way. Your project needs to be of practical benefit both to yourself and to other facilitators. It may focus on the individual, pair (coaching), team, group, organisation or community. The project may be something you are already planning for your own work. The project can be fun and you will have access to ongoing coaching from a Zenergy core team member.
